While sugar-plums danced in their heads…

🙂 Hey all! I’m so excited it’s Monday, goodness you never hear anyone say that. 😀 Well this Monday I’m saying it ’cause we have a two day week this week. That’s something to celebrate for sure AND I’m so happy the countdown to Christmas is on AND all of my shopping is done. I picked up the very last thing last night… even the stocking stuffers. Now all I need to do is work through a mountain of wrapping and drop a few things in the mail! How are you doing on your shopping? Are you all done or still waiting to start? (I’ve SOOO been there.)

Sugar Plum Fairy 1

Today I wanted to share a last minute little Christmas card I made last night. I used Mo Manning’s Sugar and colored her in Prismacolors with a bit of OMS to match (loosely) Echo Park’s Everybody Loves Christmas line. This layout just sort of popped in my head. I was messing with some paper pieces intending to use 4 squares in the background and a scrap just happened to land in the middle and I changed things up. I cut Sugar out using a Nestabilities Classic Circle Large and a Scalloped Circle Large (I really need to get some of those jumbo dies… she was almost too big). I sponged everything with Brushed Corduroy ink and added a snowflake and I stamped the back of a Tim Holtz tag with a sentiment and drew a border around it. I added a bit of Diamond Stickles here and there and some Kaiser pearls and it was all done. 😀 I really like how it came out.

Here’s a shot of the coloring:
